Bad Boys After Dark Teaser

Exclusive Excerpt: LURED BY THE pulse of sex and anonymity, Amanda Jenner moved through the dusky bar, brushing against silk, satin, cotton, and flesh, each graze feeding the adrenaline coursing through her veins. Blue lights misted over sweaty strangers lost in the seductive bump and grind of foreplay and hoping for a night of erotic pleasure. If Amanda tried hard enough, she could smell tomorrow’s scent du jour—regret. Tonight she had no room for the confidence-crushing worry of what tomorrow would bring. She scanned the crowd, as she had in the previous three bars, immediately dismissing anyone who wasn’t in costume. Her world was full of boring men who excelled at wining, dining, and boring her to sleep. Ten years of romance novels and movies had led her astray, looking for the elusive needle in a haystack. She’d led herself astray, always the careful thinker, careful dresser. Or as her younger sister, Ally, would say, Careful kisser, careful lover. Ally, however, had taken charge of her sex life—and she’d found the perfect man. Now it’s my turn.  

I'm new to the work of Ms. Foster, and this was a great book to start the aquaintance with.  It was filled with raw emotions and deep love.

Amanda has been searching for the "one" and all she's found have been men who bore her to death.  She's quiet, but feisty, and needs a man who can light those fires of passion.  She's been half in love with her boss for 3 years, but she doesn't think he even notices her.  On a hunt to find someone to light her passion, she reads a book on how to be a seductress.  On her first attempt to seduce a man for hot sex, she goes on a masquerade bar crawl.  There she spots a stranger in a mask who sets her blood boiling.

Mick has been "pining" away for his paralegal for 3 years.  But, he's afraid to let himself love anyone.  He suffered a tragic loss as a teenager, and watched his parents marriage fall apart.  He's convinced that love doesn't exist, and refuses to let himself take the chance to love.  His fear of the pain of losing someone he loves won't allow his heart the opportunity to seek the solace and healing it needs in the love of a woman.  Out to find a way to chase the demons away for a night, he goes out for the masquerade bar crawl.  Across a crowded bar, he spots a blonde vixen who has him captivated.

During their sexual encounter in the bathroom, he sees 3 freckles in a pattern he recognizes, and immediately pulls back.  He arranges a date with the mystery woman instead.  

Amanda has a date with her hot hunk from the bar, and is excited to continue with her experiment in seducing a man.  To her utter shock, in walks her boss, Mick Bad.  He confesses it was him in the bar, and her freckles gave her away.  He gets her to agree to a weekend with him, so he can teach her how to seduce men and stay safe.  His ulterior motive is to finally get her out of his system.  

Little does he realize that a weekend with Amanda will have the opposite effect.  She unleases feelings he's kept locked away, and forces him to face his demons.  Refusing to admit what he feels, he keeps reiterating that this is one weekend only.  

Amanda comes face to face with the realization that she loves Mick, and would move to moon if it meant they could be together.  But can she release him from his demons and help him believe in the reality of them?  Will the fear of losing the one person he ever loved be enough to make Mick finally open his heart to love Amanda?  You'll need to read the book to find out if he had the courage to claim the heart of the woman who loved him.

5 Star Review
Bad Boys After Dark Mick is the first book I have read by Melissa Foster and I really don't know why I have not read her before. This is the start of a new series and what a series it looks to be, its smoking, steaming hot!
Amanda needs to come out of her shell and get her sex life back on track, she has lusted after her boss Nick for many years what she didn't know was that the feeling is mutual but Nick doesn't do relationships he does one night hook ups. Amanda takes herself off to a Masquerade Ball but who is the stranger behind the mask that she tries to seduce....
The characters have chemistry and its a sexy sensual story with just the right amount of sweetness.
Looking forward to the next book in this series and more from this author

4.5 Star Review.
This was a new author to me and what an introduction it was.
This is the story of Amanda Jenner, a paralegal who is determined to take control of her love life; no longer happy to sit back and let life pass her by
Her totally off limits boss is Mick Bad, an entertainment attorney; he never mixes business with pleasure, nor does he believe in relationships.
Both decide to attend a masquerade bar crawl. Amanda is thoroughly delighted when she makes out with a smoking hot tall, dark man, only to be horrified when she finds out it is her commitment phobic boss Mick (and her secret fantasy). Mick on the other hand realises it is Amanda, which is an absolute delight since he has the hots for her.
Mick now that he has tasted the delights of Amanda wants more and offers to assist her in learning the art of seduction. A no strings attached weekend that will end on Monday. What Mick doesn’t count on is his attraction for Amanda deepening whilst Amanda is uncertain she will survive a weekend of sheer bliss with Mick.
I loved this book. There were some extremely stimulating and panty melting moments reading this book. Mick and Amanda are destined to be together, their chemistry is outstanding and I must admit I was hard pressed to stop reading.    
I loved Mick and Amanda together, as a couple and more importantly as individuals. I was cheering till the end and cannot wait to read more in the series.  

What happens when a good girl wants to become a seductress and have just one walk in the wild side?  She buys a book to give her step by step introductions on how to tempt a man.  And when she succeeds at landing the  man across the bar, what happens when that man turns out to be her boss? Read this one to see how Amanda seduces Mick Bad and does everything she can to not fall for the man who has given her the best orgasm of her life.
This was a fun read.  I enjoyed the back and forth between Amanda and Mick on where their feelings would take them.  I also felt that this author did not over do it with the angst in the story.  The plot line had enough angst in and of itself without adding anything unnecessary.  That is a fine line not to cross and this author did it amazingly well.  I will definitely be looking into more of her works. There are several completed series that I have added to my TBR.
